USAID/PROLoG Supports Workshop for Independent Inspector on New Grounds for Judicial Discipline

14 July 2020 USAID/PROLoG Supports Workshop for Independent Inspector on New Grounds for Judicial Discipline

On July 13-14st, USAID/PROLOG supported a remote 2-day workshop for the Office of the Independent Inspector (IIO) on grounds for judicial discipline by involving PROLoG’s US expert, Victoria Henley, former Director-Chief Council of the California Commission on Judicial Performance. The Fourth Wave of Judicial Reform legislative amendments that entered into force on January 1st, 2020 introduced a more detailed and better-defined list of judicial disciplinary violations. To assist the IIO to implement the requirements of the new law, topics to discuss during the workshop were judges’ conduct which violates the principles of independence and impartiality, as well as conduct that violates the principle of integrity. During the discussion, special attention was made to cases when judges exercise judicial functions while being under the influence of personal interests, including financial interests, interference of one judge in another judge’s work, and discrimination inside  and outside the courtroom.
